  • 1
    In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons melted butter, milk, and maple extract to create the icing. If needed, add more powdered sugar or milk to get the consistency equal to a soft, spreadable frosting.
  • 2
    In a small bowl, stir together pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, sugar, and 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • 3
    Prepare the frying oil by placing it into a deep-sided skillet and bringing it to medium-low heat over the stove.
  • 4
    Open the Pillsbury™ biscuits. Gently pull each in half, press down the center of the biscuits, and fill with 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree mixture.
  • 5
    Place the top back on the biscuit and press closed with a fork.
  • 6
    Fry donuts in oil. They should fry on medium-low heat until the are a dark, golden brown to ensure the center cooks and isnt doughy when you pull it apart for eating!
  • 7
    As soon as the top and bottom of the donuts are fried, remove them carefully from the hot oil with a slotted spoon, transfer to a parchment-lined drying rack, and spoon a dollop of frosting right on top of the hot donut. Smooth slightly with a spoon. Allow frosting to firm up slightly before enjoying!
